The Fitzgerald Jewelry School encourages creativity and exploration of all areas of jewelry making both for the casual hobbyist or the student considering a career in jewelry making. We offer a broad range of courses from beginner’s silversmithing through to the art of the goldsmith. Our courses can be taken consecutively over a period of a year or can be taken at the students own pace over a longer period of time. We offer special rates for students who wish to enroll in several courses. The studios philosophy emphasizes the art of the handmade object but also concentrates on how to make items for limited production and also for greater volume production with this in mind we provide a bridge between the studio jeweler and the jewelry industry through our classes, workshops and by directly providing a link for students to explore the New York Jewelry district. All classes require a 50% deposit to hold a space with the balance at the start of the class. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. Registration can be made by phone or in person. Refund Policy: deposits will be fully refunded up to a month before the class begins less 5% processing fee. 50% of the deposit fee will be returned two weeks before class begins 25% the week before.
